CFP: CARL 2014 Virtual Conference - Leadership in Action

CFP: CARL 2014 Virtual Conference - Leadership in Action

URL: http://carl-conference.org/
California Academic & Research Libraries

A supervisor who offers opportunities for librarians to spread their wings. The Library Director who can make the difficult decision and then gracefully guide her library through changes.  The new librarian fresh out of school who fearlessly brings innovation to his first job.  The Reference Librarian who provides guidance to her colleagues. A library faculty who drives the information literacy requirement in an Academic Senate committee.

Leadership exists in many ways and in many places in our libraries.  How can we continue to encourage, cultivate, and celebrate it?  And ultimately, what does it mean to you, your institution, and librarianship?

Virtual Conference:

The 2014 CARL Virtual Conference will be a one-day event held Friday, April 11th, following the main conference. We are accepting proposals for presentations consistent with the main conference theme, 30-35 minutes in length (with 10-15 minutes for questions), to be delivered via Collaborate or GoToWebinar (TBD). The deadline for Virtual Conference submissions is October 14, 2013.  The primary contact on the proposal will be notified that the proposal has been received by Tuesday, October 22, 2013.  The primary contact on the proposal will be notified if the proposal has been accepted by Friday, November 8, 2013. There will be a $50 registration fee for the virtual conference for individuals not attending the main CARL conference in early April. Virtual conference presenters not attending the main conference will be required to register.

Proposals must be submitted online at http://carl-conference.org/

Only electronic proposals will be accepted.

NOTE: If you have submitted a proposal for a main conference session and indicated that you would like to be considered for the virtual conference as well, there is no need to resubmit!

Please send questions about submitting a proposal for the virtual conference to Jacqui Grallo at jgrallo@csumb.edu.
